AFL Grand Final Entertainment: Robbie William’s x-rated bracelet, who’s playing, start time, how to watch

Robbie Williams joined AFL boss Gillon McLachlan on Thursday as the league presented its entertainment lineup for the grand final.

Music megastar Williams is the star and stole the show, but it was an accessory on her wrist that caught fans’ attention.

Williams stood alongside McLachlan as the outgoing boss welcomed the packed entertainment lineup which includes Delta Goodrem, G-Flip, Katie Noonan, Ngairre, Goanna, Tasman Keith, The Temper Trap and Mike Brady.

Goodrem was announced as a last-minute surprise who will join Williams at the blockbuster pre-match entertainment.

But as the introductions rolled on, eagle-eyed fans couldn’t help but notice the blasphemous laced jewelry Williams was rocking.

On Williams’ right wrist was a shimmering silver bracelet with the words “f***off” engraved on it.

“I know a little about footy,” Williams told reporters.

“I haven’t fully picked a team that I’m going to support for on a regular basis and I’m not picking a team until the final…and I don’t want the other half (of the crowd) booing me while I sing.

“Honored to be part of the occasion.
